Raiders’ Davante Adams pushes man to ground after loss to Chiefs on ‘Monday Night Football’

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams shoved a man at Arrowhead Stadium, sending the person to the ground with the force of his push, en route to the locker room after the Raiders’ 30-29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The condition of the person who was pushed is not yet known, but he appeared to be fine after the push and appeared stable after the incident.

After pushing the man, Adams, still wearing his helmet, continued walking toward the locker room, not looking back at the person on the ground.

Check out what happened after the game:

Here’s another angle on the incident:

Whether action will be taken by the league or the man has yet to be determined, but Adams could be looking at some form of discipline.

Adams has since apologized, saying it was out of frustration and that it wasn’t the right way to respond.

Taking questions from the media in the locker room, Adams said: “Before I answer anything else, I want to apologize to the guy, I see somebody running off the field, he ran and jumped in front of me coming off the field and I hit him and I kind of pushed. I think he ended up on the ground, so I want to apologize to him for that, because it was just frustration mixed with him running and, literally running in front of me and I I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I responded in the first place. So I want to apologize to him for that.”

Adams also apologized on Twitter:

The 29-year-old, who finished the game with three catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns, was likely upset about the last two plays of the one-point loss. First, the side blocking catch was ruled out of bounds as he only had one foot in bounds while in control. That set up the fourth-and-1.

On the next play, quarterback Derek Carr’s deep pass fell incomplete as Adams and Hunter Renfrow collided while running their routes. The Chiefs got the ball back on turnovers on downs, then ran out the clock to seal another Raiders loss.

The wide receiver is clearly upset with the state of his team, which fell to 1-4 after the division loss.

The Raiders went up by 17 points on the road, but the Chiefs offense responded with four touchdowns by Travis Kelce and eventually won the game.

The Raiders were able to tie the game, 30-29 after a touchdown, but decided to attempt a two-point conversion instead of taking the extra point and tying the game. The effort fell short and ended up being the difference in the game.
